  • getting the dark blotchy patches while out in the sun, the arthritis, the fatigue, and neurological symptoms sounds like lupus to me. Women of childbearing age are at highest risk for it!!!!

  • Ask MD's to check your hemoglobin level after you have your period. Anemia (low hemoglobin levels can change thru out the month) and anemia can present in lots of your complaints. The measurement after your period is important, your body attempts to regain hemoglobin after it is loss. What is "normal" for others is not necessarily what is normal for you. Also there is a specialization of cardiology that the cardiologist refer their patients to, they are called electrophysiologist, so if you haven't been checked out by one of them, you haven't been checked out. Hang in there, your body is always right.
